This school is a scam.Quite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
This school is a scam. I had some classes (with Terry Nauheim) where the professor didn't show up for about a quarter of the classes. I had other professors (Robert Smith) who taught us practically nothing because they were busy ranting about aliens and psychedelic drugs. The web design class (probably the most important class for graphic design students) taught me literally nothing (thank you, Sandra Villareal) and the admissions office was completely uncooperative and condescending, treating me like a chore, and not a paying customer. Every semester I was there at least one of my classes was cancelled last minute, which did, one some occasions, make me miss crucial material, or have to do freshman intro classes on my last semester. Horrible college experience, they basically just suck all the money they can out of you and hand you a second rate, sloppy diploma.

There is such bad comments about this schoolQuite BrightCommunications
There is such bad comments about this school and I am not sure why. I have only been here almost a year. I transferred from a state school because I did not like it. I came here to the city and I love it. I work for the school as work study and have met so much of the faculty in my department and have already built relationships up with my professors. I am always writing up career opportunity fliers so I don't understand how everyone is saying the school won't help you get a job. My advisor already promised me an internship next year, when I will only be a Junior! I live on campus at Clark residence halls and I love it there. Everyone there said it was boring, but I have not had one boring week yet. It is not a party school, I came from one and it is not all it's hyped up to be. If you can be bored living in New York City, you are going to be bored everywhere. You have to go out and do things for yourself. Meet people, actually do your school work, get a part time job, do something, and you will have fun. I like it and I can't believe all the negative feedback the school is getting. By the way, the dorms are amazing! You live in a hotel basically, it used to be one. Its gorgeous and so roomy! I think the negative feedback may be from the Old Westbury NYIT campus, I myself did not like it there when I went to visit. Thats why I'm in Manhattan. :-)

This is a good school that will provideQuite BrightComputer Science
This is a good school that will provide you with a good education. It's not Harvard or MIT (I guess?), but if that's what you're looking for you wouldn't be reading this anyway.

There is not much of a social life to speak of, but who cares? I'm not saying that there's nothing fun to do, but I think that this school is more about academics than it's up to you to prioritize.

It is expensive, but there are good Financial Aid options.
The baseball team is Division I and is decent. I think that it's probably easy for a student who has a bad experience in college to blame the school, so take all of the reviews with a grain of salt. Overall, this school has been a good experience for me.
